Oliver was born in St. Levis, Quebec on January 12, 1872. He was one of the earliest settlers in the Spirit River area. Oliver enlisted in the Canadian army in August of 1916. Because he suffered from myalgia, he was sent back to Canada in the winter of 1918 and discharged in January of 1919. After being discharged, he returned to his homestead (14-78-5-W6 and 7-79-6-W6) in Spirit River. Oliver died in Spirit River on February 1, 1946.
